During the first Arizona Senate debate on Wednesday, Rep. Jeff Flake said he has not and will not sign Grover Norquist's no-tax pledge. "The only pledge I'd sign is a pledge to sign no more pledges," Flake said. "I don't want higher taxes. But no more pledges." It turns out Flake was only half right. Americans for Tax Reform lists him as one of the 238 Representatives who have signed the bill, which does mean he can't sign it again.
